What Trueform says for West Ham vs Leicester
West Ham and Leicester have drawn two of their last three Premier League meetings and another close encounter could be on the cards at London Stadium.
The Foxes are five points above the Hammers in the table, but home advantage for United makes these likeable outfits difficult to split.
Punters can get 12/5 for a stalemate and that is our opening West Ham vs Leicester prediction.
A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds
West Ham suffered a third straight defeat when going down 2-1 to Manchester United at Old Trafford but were arguably the better team that day.
A brace of penalties from Paul Pogba proved decisive, but Felipe Anderson should also have had a double for the Hammers.
The Brazilian had a strike incorrectly ruled out for offside before netting in the 49th minute, while Michail Antonio rattled the bar and had a downward header clawed away by David De Gea.
Manuel Pellegrini commented: “I’m frustrated, of course, because I think we deserved more. It was a pleasure to see the team playing the way we did against Manchester United in their own stadium.”
Even Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted: “West Ham played well, played better than us, created chances.”
The Hammers have generally been strong at home since the turn of the year, but did recently lose to Everton here.
Looking at the West Ham vs Leicester odds, we favour 3/1 for a score draw on this occasion.
Last West Ham line-up: Fabianski, Balbuena, Zabaleta, Ogbonna, Masuaku, Anderson, Lanzini, Snodgrass, Noble, Rice, Hernandez.
West Ham should have forward Marko Arnautovic back following illness, defender Aaron Cresswell (knee) could also return, while striker Javier Hernandez will be monitored due to an ear problem.
Manuel Lanzini and Samir Nasri (both groin) are expected to miss out, but Jack Wilshere (ankle) could feature.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Brendan Rodgers got off to a flying start as Leicester boss but a run of four straight wins was halted by a 1-0 loss to Newcastle at King Power Stadium.
The Foxes fell behind on 32 minutes to an Ayoze Perez strike and failed to find a cutting edge up front when chasing an equaliser.
“In the second half, we had a couple of chances and much better pressure in the game, but it wasn’t quite enough,” stated Rodgers.
“It’s historic in this type of game where we’ve lost 1-0 and teams have camped in.”
City did have a kind fixture list when picking up 15 points out of 18 prior to that setback, but they still warrant respect after climbing as high as seventh in the table.
It was 1-1 when these teams met in the East Midlands towards the end of October and also at this venue last season, so 6/1 for that scoreline to come up again completes our West Ham vs Leicester betting tips.
Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Chilwell, Morgan, Pereira, Maguire, Gray, Maddison, Barnes, Tielemans, Ndidi, Vardy.
Marc Albrighton’s return to fitness from a hamstring injury has given Leicester boss Rodgers a welcome selection dilemma.
The Foxes have no new injury issues, with Daniel Amartey (ankle) still out and Matty James lacking fitness.
